There will be only one place to be for lovers of great underground hip-hop in San Francisco this Thursday, March 27th, and that is at 1015 Folsom for a performance by Freddie Gibbs and Madlib. The somewhat unlikely pairing of emcee and producer will be performing in support of their recent collaborative release, Pinata, released on March 18th, 2014. The album features a star-studded list of guests, including such hip-hop staples as Raekwon, Earl Sweatshirt, Danny Brown, Scarface, Ab-Soul, Casey Veggies, and Mac Miller, and was preceded by three Madlib/Gibbs EPs released over 2012 and 2013.

If you need to know more about the artists to be performing, Freddy Gibbs is part of a new generation of street-oriented rappers, having been produced by such top hip-hop beatmakers as Red Spyda, Just Blaze, Buckwild, The Alchemist, Polow Da Don, and Collipark. The Gary, Indiana native is known for bringing a grit and grime to the game which has faded in recent years, while still maintaining a modernist appeal. Madlib is one of the top hip-hop producers of all time, having worked with such top-notch artists as Erykah Badu, J Dilla, MF Doom, Snoop Dogg, and many more.
